Video: Nelson Mandela: 'I'm not a saint'

Nelson Mandela, the former South African president and anti-apartheid icon, died on December 5 at the age of 95. “He passed on peacefully in the company of his family … He is now resting. He is now at peace,” South African President Jacob Zuma said, announcing Mandela’s death. “Our nation has lost its greatest son. Our people have lost a father.” In this video from the Baker Institute at Rice University, Houston, Nelson Mandela addresses the college in October, 1999, saying, “I am not a saint, unless you think of a saint as a sinner who keeps on trying.” Credit: Youtube/Baker Institute
